Nokia is finally back in action ever since they were acquired by HMD Global. With HMD Global now taking over the operations at Nokia, the company has been releasing a slew of smartphones and basic phones over the past year or two. Today, Nokia adds a new phone to their basic phone lineup dubbed as the Nokia 106 and it seems to be a great side-runner.
The new Nokia 106 brings an elegant and comfortable design approach with the Nokia 106, ditching their usual blocky shaped phones from the early 2000s. While HMD Global has released quite a few basic smartphones, the design language that the Nokia 106 brings to the table definitely needs a second to be applauded for.
Featuring an 800mAh battery, a 1.8″-inch display, Dual SIM slots and support for 2000 SMS and 500 contact saves, the phone is definitely respectable, especially for the killer price of just $18 in the US. In addition to that, Nokia claims that the device could last up to 21 days on a single charge while standby and would easily offer around 15 hours worth of talk time.
On the outside, the shell of the Nokia 106 is made of polycarbonate and is made to hide scratches behind the phone. In addition to that, with the help of a comfortable design, the phone is definitely going to be a treat to hold.
Regarding when you’ll be able to get your hands on the Nokia 106, you’re going to have to wait until tomorrow to get your hands on the device for a mere US $18. While it certainly isn’t expensive, it definitely would be an incredible device to keep along with your smartphone given that it sports Dual SIM slots.
